Love it here. Found this place by accident in 1999. Came back and hiked the base. Lots of rock climbers. Great pics and hotter than hell. What do you expect in July?

The Visitor Center is situated next to the parking lots, near the base of the tower and the start of some of the trails, including the most popular, paved, 1.3 mile Tower Trail. It includes information about the tower; legends surrounding it, as well as how it was formed, and there are simple bathrooms on the lower level (accessed outside... More

First saw Tower from 22 miles away and it just kept looking more amazing as we got nearer. Bring water and a picnic to complete your day. Senior pass admits your party free! We walked the 1.3 mile trail around the base of the Tower. Took some beautiful pictures. Lots of information is available along the trail and in the... More

Enjoy. Take your time, walk the base. Easy 1.3 mile walk, benches to rest if you need it. Very peaceful and deserves reverence. Not at all movie-fied or commercial.

The staff at the visitors center are very welcoming and kind. There is great information about the geological history and local legend of the tower. It was a very nice place to visit.

Devils Tower was the first National Monument declared such by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1906. The elevation is 4,250 feet at the base and the tower is 867 feet taller. The top of the tower is the size of a football field. We could see it when we were still a half hour away. Created over 50/60 million years ago.... More

I've been to Devil's Tower a few times now and never cease to be awe-inspired. A very nice walk around the tower, though I suggest you go in the morning before it gets to hot. There are also nature trails if you're looking to avoid the crowd. You can see it from the road, but there's something very special about... More

It only takes about couple of hours to circle around the tower. Especially in the morning and late afternoon the colors of the basalt change. Great addition to visiting Badlands and other attractions in this corner of S. Dakota and Wyoming.

Okay and had Junior Ranger but not much else. Most of this was the hike and tower to check out. Good back stories on monument though
